Cordillera - Who's not in love and fascinated wearing traditional Cordilleran inspired clothing among winners of the recently concluded Miss Universe Philippines 2020?

And now added to the list is Miss Universe Philippines 2nd Runner Up Miss Michelle Theresa Gumabao who wears a Cordilleran-inspired traditional dress made of Paracelis weave and designed by Fashion Designer Erjohn Dela Serna. 

The traditional weaving of the Ga'dang community in Paracelis, Mt. Province involves an intricate beadwork that makes the garment unique from the others.

Weavers from the community takes a lot of time to produce one and the work is too tedious. For instance, a bakwat, or belt can take up to more than one week of weaving.

A school in the community called Paracelis School of Living Tradition was established to preserve and pass on the traditional Ga'dang cloth weaving and unleash the creativity of the youth while incorporating in them the values of hard work, patience, and love of culture.

The 22-year-old Mateo, who bested 45 other candidates, will represent the Philippines in the yet to be announced Miss Universe pageant. 

During the event ceremony, host KC Montero asked Mateo should she be given a chance to create a paper currency with the image of any living or dead Filipino, who would it be? 

Mateo responded by saying she would pick her fellow Ilongga, the late Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago. 

"For those who don't know, she was an Ilongga, but what I admired about her is that she used her knowledge, her voice, to serve the country," Mateo said. 

"And I want to be somebody like here. Somebody who puts her heart, her passion into action. And after all, she is the best president that we never had," she added.  

In a photo shoot, Mateo was seen wearing a Kalinga woven Head Cover design called the "Lilagtob" in Lubuagan dialect or "Gittut' in Naneng.

Congratulations Miss Rabiya Mateo and Good Luck for the upcoming Miss Universe pageant.
